How to post on yammer external network group

Hi all

I belong to several yammer groups defined both in my company parent network and also in external networks.

I have been playing with Action Block "Yammer Post Message" and when checking "Group ID" options I just see Parent Network groups I belong to, but none of the external networks groups I belong to.

If I enter GRoup ID from an external network group I belong to and execute flow, the post fails. If I enter GRoup ID from a parent network group I belong to, the post suceeds.

 

Is this a Yammer API limitation, or an Action Block limitation? Any workaround suggested?

Thank you in advance!

This is a limitation of the Yammer connector (or action block). When you consent a Yammer connection with your credentials, it grants access only to the primary network. Few additional API calls need to be made in order to get access to external networks. Currently the connector does not support this. I will forward this request to the relevant team so that they fix this in a future rollout.

Thank you for your detailed explanation!

 

 

Is there an update on this? We need this for a large rollout of Yammer.

Hello, what additional calls to API need to be run to get the possibility to post on External Network?

Thank you!
